From this session we were able to work out what both of us wanted to achieve from this collaboration and we found out that were both interested in alot of the same things, this could work in advantage for us but equally go against us too.

At the end of the session we had a brief discussion and decided on doing ELLA'S KITCHEN because i felt as though this offers a wider range of design and ideas that could be brought out for it, its also asking for more to be done for it, which works better as there is two of us.

My argument was that the ITS NICE THAT brief i could do within 3/4 days so in a pair it would take no time, whereas ELLAS KITCHEN is alot bigger brief and asking for more.

We decided that over the weekend we would go away and both come up with some concepts and ideas for the brief. We will meet again on Monday to discuss the ideas and come up with the final concept and idea behind it.
